  • There is loads to see and do. It's worth visiting on a weekend where they have special engines running. Although it will be busier. Have a trip on a train and explore the engine sheds. The staff are really friendly and always willing to chat. It's a good day out.
  • Fun day for the kids, our eldest child loves trains and was in his element straight away. We have three children paid for a family ticket £38.00, whilst waiting for the first train we entertained them by watching the model railway in the building at the side of the ticket office. Got on the train upto Swanwick Junction and had all day on the site. We also paid for a ride on the narrow gauge railway to Riddings. Must be an all day visit to see everything and use the tea rooms! Good gift shop at the exit/ entrance at Butterley.
  • Great day out, loads to see and do and some lovely home made cakes. We took our 3 young boys who are all under 5 and there was plenty to keep them entertained for the entire day.
  • Great trip well worth the visit, great effort by all volunteers. Thanks folks great trip 10 of us came to celebrate a 81st birthday treat. Our fault should have left more time plenty to do in 3-4 hours
  • A lovely exciting time for all the family. A very welcoming day out .
